Xuru ZHANG, Lujiang ZHOU, Shuai LENG


With the rapid development of China, the thoughts on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era put forward new requirements for improving minority college students’ cultural confidence. In light of this, the study constructed an improvement model, from perspectives of cultural consciousness, cultural practice, and cultural recognition, with the purpose of strengthening minority college students’ confidence on the Chinese traditional culture, Chinese revolutionary culture, socialist core values, minority culture,and Thoughts on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era prospectively. In a creative way, a cultural practice platform was mainly built on the basis of the status analysis of cultural consciousness hold by minority students. Furthermore, strategies for cultural recognition were discussed from the objective, subjective and intermediary level, thus forming a comprehensive model for improving the cultural confidence of minority college students.
